0 Sequences

These were growing in an area dominated by Sitka spruce.
Caps were up to 12.0 cm across, and they appeared to be dry.
Did not detect any strong odor and the taste was mild.
The spore print initially looked whitish but it now has a light yellow color.
The spores were ~ 7.2-8.9 X 7.0-8.8 microns with low warts and some thin reticulation. They were globose to subglobose.
I don’t recall any color changes.

I am pretty sure that this species is in the Xerampelina group — we extracted nrITS from a very similar species. Note the bruising discoloration on the stipe.
